Reaching Out - Serving Others

Relieving Hunger

The West Chester Salvation Army Shelter

Each month, we join organizations from the community to serve the evening meal at the Shelter.  Menus rotate; there are lots of ways to participate, whether or not cooking is your special gift. 


The Chester County Food Bank

We make regular trips to distribute the food we collect on Sundays. Borrow a red Shopping Bag from the Narthex to remind you to pick up some extra next time you're at the store and share it with the clients of the Food Bank.  


Our Gleaning Garden

 Hundreds of pounds of fresh produce make their way to the Chester County Food Bank, thanks to gleaning gardens. at churches and other organizations around the County.   Our Gleaning Garden is  four raised-bed gardens on the east end of the church property.  The seeds we plant in April provide fresh vegetables for the Chester County Food Bank.   Regular watering and weeding will help our harvest overflow again this year.  Contact the Church Office to help out.  610.692.2951


Bread for the Children

​​​​​​​Of Peru

For almost the last decade, our congregation has collectively and individually supported this faith-based mission by sponsoring children with a monthly donation that provides school supplies for a child and food staples to his or her family.  Members of the congregation have gone on two mission trips, in 2007 and 2010, to witness the program in action and lend a hand wherever it's needed.  Currently, the Sunday School Offering supports Nataly, 14, who lives in Iquitos, Peru.  You can find letters from Nataly on the Mission bulletin board in the Narthex.  

Our Women's Group 

Christmas Outreach

​Our women adopt a residence cottage at Bethany Children's Home, a UCC-related home in Womelsdorf, providing gifts for each child.  


We also brighten the holidays for the clients of Bridge of Hope, Chester and Lancaster Counties, which works to end family homelessness.

Our Prayer Wall

Look for it beside the entrance doors in the Narthex.   One side has a sign “For God’s Eyes Only” and you are invited to place private, confidential prayers there.  The other side has a sign “For the Prayer Group to Pray."  This side is for you to place prayers which will be opened and prayed as the Church Prayer Groups meet monthly.  You are encouraged to use this form of praying as we together commit ourselves to be a congregation  that prays always!
